New Delhi: Uncapped opener Keaton Jennings and all-rounder Liam Dawson will join the England squad as replacements for the remaining two Test matches against India, the team management said Wednesday.
Jennings, 24, will replace Haseeb Hameed, who has been ruled out of the remainder of the series after fracturing a finger during the third Mohali Test which England lost by eight wickets to trail the five-match rubber 2-0.
Dawson was called up to replace left-arm spinner Zafar Ansari, who is still struggling with the back injury he sustained in the second Test in Visakhapatnam.
"Ansari will stay with the squad and continue to receive medical support in India before returning to England on December 8," the England team management said in a statement.
Dawson, 26, made his one-day international and T20 debuts this year.
Jennings and Dawson would join the squad next week in Mumbai which is set to host the fourth Test from December 8.
The first Test in Rajkot ended in a draw before India won the Visakhapatnam game by 246 runs.
The Test series will be followed by three ODIs and three T20 games.
